was one of my first friends and first collaborators when I moved to LA 8 years ago. Here’s a shot from our upcoming spot for @novafitnessstudios.
You’d be hard pressed to find someone who dreams as big or works as hard as this guy right here. We’ve got a lot to accomplish in 2019.
Shanghai, China - 2018
6 years ago things weren’t really clicking for me in LA, so I took my job search global. Cold emails to every major city on the planet looking for anyone in the world who would pay me to shoot. Eventually I had an opportunity for a job in Shanghai, but I had to get myself there. I took a risk, maxed out my credit card, and booked a flight. I was working for a 5 star hotel but drinking at the hostel down the road because cocktails were $2. Well that trip lead to more trips and slowly built the foundation of the work I’m doing now. The thing about growth is that sometimes you don’t feel it at all. Sometimes success happens so slowly it feels like failure. You just keep trying to do better work, be a better collaborator, and focus on that momentum. Then 6 years later you come back to that city and realize maybe you’ve grown more than you thought you had.
Walking into the weekend like
Isle of Skye, Scotland - 2018
40mph winds and rainy today, sadly couldn’t get the drone up in the air. Luckily some places still look ok from the ground.
Scottish Highlands - 2018
Been looking forward to this all year. A dram of whisky and a fireplace in the Highlands. A long overdue moment to take a breath and reflect on an absolute bender of a year.
Speyside, Scotland - 2018
The River Spey in all her glory, giving life to more whisky distilleries than any other region. My home for the next few days.
BAEcation2018 is off to a great start.... Next stop: London!
The last in my series from Uganda. I appreciate everyone sticking with me as I post older photos from my travels. I’m grateful to be in a position to spend time with people all over the world, and if I’m lucky, I get the opportunity to share their story and let them shine.
Mbale, Uganda - 2016
My favorite photo from my favorite trip. Spent a week in Uganda with some great people building clean water wells. I was photographing some kids playing soccer when my buddy shouted “son, look behind you!”. Turned around and snapped this photo. Always good to have someone watching your back and making sure you don’t miss your best shots.
Under Armour spot I directed and shot with @therock
drops on Thursday. Very proud of our work on this one and can’t wait to share it with the world. #TeamNoSleep
